"I would love you forever, if I only had the chance..."
Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge--impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch...
Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he's vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.
Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.
I need to give you a heads up…this is more of a personal blog post rather than a book review. I have a question… Have you ever read a story that touched you down deep into your soul? “Full Tilt” was just that book for me.
I completely identified with this story. Not that the man in my life is a limo driver nor am I a talented musician attempting to beat the odds rather we are going through a similar transplant situation.
The emotions felt so real. I saw myself in Kacey, I saw my husband in Jonah. And while Kacey and Jonah’s story caused me to shed countless tears and had me feeling this immense grief, I found inspiration in it too. When he said…
“We might not have months or years, but we have moments. Thousands upon thousands of them. Let’s take each moment, seize it and wring it dry…”
…things clicked for me.
It was as if I was meant to read Full Tilt at this particular point in my life. Full Tilt spoke to me on so many different levels. With these honest words, Emma Scott opened my eyes. She made me believe that perhaps there is hope, that perhaps I too may one day find the light at the end of this dark tunnel.
Thank you, Emily, for recommending this book and introducing me to this amazing author. And Thank you , Emma Scott, for writing such a beautiful, poignant and (for me an) utterly life-changing story. Without a doubt, this series is definitely one of my favs this year.
Because of how much of an impact Kacey and Jonah’s story made in my life, I rate this book…..
